The Broadband Phone Network : Experiences with Context-Aware Telephony CUED / F − INFENG / TR . 533

  title={The Broadband Phone Network : Experiences with Context-Aware Telephony CUED / F − INFENG / TR . 533},
  author={Ripduman Sohan and Alastair Tse},
We introduce the Broadband Phone, a Voice-over-IP (VoIP) based phone which integrates a high-resolution, touch-sensitive LCD screen. The Broadband Phone Network features: (i) a thin-client network architecture enabling easy integration into the sentient environment at the Anonymous University; (ii) location-sensing via the Active Bat indoor location system allowing applications such as the “follow-me phone”; and (iii) location-based handover of Bluetooth connections, enabling integration of the…

Exploring PC-telephone convergence with the enhanced telephony prototype

Results indicate that PC-phone software is a promising technology for the workplace and that the most valuable features may be those that help people manage their incoming calls.

SenSay: a context-aware mobile phone

Results from the threshold analyses show a clear delineation can be made among several user states by examining sensor data trends.

The interactive performance of SLIM: a stateless, thin-client architecture

The fundamental premise in this system design that modern, off-the-shelf interconnection technology can support the quality-of-service required by today's graphical and multimedia applications is examined.

Virtual Network Computing

The structure of the VNC protocol is described, and the ways the authors use VNC technology now and how it may evolve further as new clients and servers are developed are discussed.

An overview of the Etherphone system and its applications

The Etherphone system has been developed to explore methods for extending existing multimedia office environments with the facilities needed to handle the transmission, storage, and manipulation of

Quiet calls: talking silently on mobile phones

An evaluation of QC-Hold shows that it is easily used and suggests ways in which Quiet Calls offers a new form of communication, extending the choices offered by synchronous phone calling and asynchronous voicemail.

Project Aura: Toward Distraction-Free Pervasive Computing

Aura aims to minimize distractions on a user's attention, creating an environment that adapts to the user's context and needs, specifically intended for pervasive computing environments involving wireless communication, wearable or handheld computers, and smart spaces.

Interference Evaluation of Bluetooth and IEEE 802.11b Systems

A simulation framework for modeling interference based on detailed MAC and PHY models is developed and used to evaluate the effect of mutual interference on the performance of Bluetooth and IEEE 802.11b systems.

Managing stored voice in the Etherphone system

The voice manager in the Etherphone system provides facilities for recording, editing, and playing stored voice in a distributed personal-computing environment. It provides the basis for applications

The Anatomy of a Context-Aware Application

A sensor-driven, or sentient, platform for context-aware computing that enables applications to follow mobile users as they move around a building and presents it in a form suitable for application programmers is described.
